A monograph made up of chapters previously published in the author's Breathing—Physiology, Environment and Lung Disease (1974) that have been revised and amended. Includes an unusual chapter on acts requiring voluntary breathing (speech, singing, instrument playing) and one that runs beyond the usual concerns of physiology, "Environment and Lung Disease." The latter is not a full clinical treatise but concentrates on pathogenesis and functional estimates of lung injury. Large number of explanatory diagrams; well referenced; detailed index.
